Actually, lslam, it means peace. Means the religion of peace. He needs us to follow his teaching. Literally. From A to Z. Non-violence. Then you really do honor to the Prophet. But the people who are doing violent things really, really make Muslim religion look bad, and make the real, beautiful, friendly, loving Muslim believers look bad.

(May we know why some of the Masters had to face more physical persecution than others? For example, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, had to endure a lot of violent attacks during his lifetime.)

Yeah. Or Jesus, for example. Many other Masters that you don’t know. You should read the history of religions in Hindu, in Sanskrit or in Hindus’ language. They recorded all the suffering of different Masters. Not just Hindu but maybe Iran before, many Masters suffered. The Sufis’ Master or any Master suffered a lot. Terrible, terrible suffering. Terrible death. But only the most famous we know, that’s the Prophet of Islam and Jesus Christ. But there are many, countless of them. The reason was that in those times, people probably were still very more aggressive than now. And the communication between humans was not as efficient as nowadays. Even nowadays, we have internet and television and telephone and all that, the Master is still being harassed.

And it’s different groups of people. If you teach people to be good, then the bad people hate you. If you teach people don’t gamble, then the casinos hate you. If you teach people don’t eat meat, then the slaughterhouses and the ones who live from the blood of the animals, they hate you. If you teach people don’t take drugs, don’t smoke, then these powerful companies also hate you. Especially the drug dealers, the drug lords. You saw it on TV, and on internet or newspapers.

There are always two forces in this world, negative and positive. The negative tells people to do all the bad things that are harmful to societies and to themselves. The positive people try to stop that and tell people to do good, whatever good for the nation, for the world, and for themselves. And these are always at odds with each other. This is the temptation that we always heard about in this world. The negative always tries to give temptation to people, to make people bad. And the positive power tries to save them, tries to tell them to do the right thing, go into the better, correct direction.

So, the Master, the Prophet always represents this positive power. And many negative representatives on this planet of course will not want the Master to be alive or to be well. Because if the Master takes all the souls to Heaven, then what do they do here? They cannot control people anymore, they cannot tell people to kill each other anymore, they cannot tell people to drug themselves to death or harm their bodies by drugs and by all kinds of bad habits anymore. All souls are free. So they’re afraid. They want to keep the souls here, enslaved forever. Imagine the king without any subjects. I proclaim myself to be the queen of what, of whom? I sit in the throne and I, “I’m the queen, I’m the queen,” all day long, nobody cares. Same with the negative power. The king of maya, the king of the negative force, wants to have subjects, wants everybody to slave under his power, listen to him, do whatever he wants. And the more you do what he wants, the more you stay here. And then you might even inflict other people, infect other people around and keep more souls, bring more souls to his kingdom. Then he controls more and more and more. That’s why. Okay?

Otherwise, we can never understand how such a benevolent Master like Buddha or Jesus Christ or Prophet Muhammad would ever be hated or persecuted or assassinated or tried to be harmed by anybody else. Right? (Yes, Master.) Even just average people would never understand that.

Normally we would think, “Oh, whoever does good, they’re praised on television, have a medal here from the president or certificate from the governor, whatever. Then how come the Prophet, the best of all the good, get persecuted, harassed, or even assassinated?” You see? How would we understand that? Only because the negative power doesn’t want the Master to come here and save any souls. Any stray souls come here, the negative power tries to make him worse, make him worse than before – he probably was not too bad. Or maybe he was good and then he tempts him with all kind of things. Sends his subordinates to be his friends and tell him, “Oh, alcohol is good. Womanizing is good. Brothel is good. Casino, lose all money is good. Who cares about money?” For example. Just tempting him, sending people to be his friends, sending his subordinates, the low-level, negative-influenced people to be around him, be his friends, and drag the soul into the bad company.

Then if he’s not strong enough or if he’s not lucky to find some better friends to get him out, then he will be lost also into that company. You are the company you keep. Tell me who are your friends and I would know who you are. That’s what it is. In Âu Lạc (Vietnam), we also say, “If you are with the ink, you will get blackened. If you are with the light, you will be brightened.” Okay? Yeah.
